In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Business Improvement Areas (BIAs), the Town of Oakville has proclaimed September 28-October 2 Oakville BIA Week. 

Oakville BIA Week recognizes the efforts of Oakville’s three BIAs – Downtown Oakville, Bronte Village, and Kerr Village – to market and attract businesses, maintain public spaces, provide a bridge between small business and government, and make Oakville the most livable town in Canada.

As part of our BIA Week celebrations, we’ll be using our social platforms to highlight the importance of supporting local, as well as introducing our new Executive Director, Adrienne Gordon – stay tuned for an official video introduction later this week!
